It looks like the US government wants to put its stamp of approval on any drones you own, with a report from NBC News indicating that the Obama administration is ready to announce new plans for drones.




The new plans would see drone owners needing to register their drones with the Department of Transport, so that they can make sure you don't fly your drone into any aircraft coming in, and out of airports. I don't know how registering your drone would stop that, apart from the government being able to better identify who owns the drone, but what do I know.


The new plan is expected to be announced as soon as Monday, with the DoT wanting to get drone registration happening by Christmas - just in time for those aerial drones wrapped up under the tree.
